Actually I have seen somethin gcalled a "telnet proxy"
two things come to mind
1 was part of a larger proxy server package
you would telnet to it and send "C Host" and it would then connect you
the other was a C program I saw somewhere that you could run and
again telnet into and make conenctions elsewhere
1 was part of a "Proxy Sevrer" package (actually...I think
it was WinGate for Win95) the other for Unix and advertised
as helping you hide where you are comming from for "hacking"
course it would still do the job...course I agree with you
socks is much better...I just felt like nit-picking :)
